This is Anders Nilsen’s Abraxas: Box Landscape with Chase Scene - it is a hand-made artist’s book from an edition of 45 copies. Accordion-bound, printed in archival pigment on cold press watercolor paper, it is a continuous landscape drawing — over seven feet long — with a chase scene playing out through the landscape. We are thrilled to be able to offer a few of these… this kind of book is everything Wig Shop believes in.

Nilsen made an unbound edition of 250 but hand-produced 45 copies in salmon-colored book cloth with screenprinted boards. The left edge of the accordion is bound directly into the boards while the far end is loose, so you can unleash the whole panorama and take it all in. In addition there were 15 lettered copies that had an original drawing bound in to finish off the landscape — these have long since sold out. All folded up, the book is 7 1/4 x 5 3/4 inches.

Highly, highly recommended. A stunning art object from one of the finest illustrators out there.
